Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi, Nov 24: When activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal was announcing his party's name on Saturday, Nov 24, a group of volunteers from Tamil Nadu were seen protesting after being denied entry into the meeting venue.

Eye-witnesses say a group from Tamil Nadu was seen arguing with a party coordinator on why they were not accommodated. Volunteers from across the country attended the meeting.

Kejriwal's party was on Saturday named as 'Aam Admi Party' at a meeting of its founder members in New Delhi during which the constitution for the organisation was also adopted. The meeting of around 300 founder members was held at Constitution Club in New Delhi during which Kejriwal proposed the name of the party which was accepted by other members, sources said.

On Oct 2, Kejriwal announced the formation of the party saying its official launch will be on Nov 26, the day Constitution was adopted in 1949.

Ahead of the meeting, Kejriwal said on Saturday that common men, women, children are forming their party.

"They are not politicians. They are fed up of politicians. They are the people who are fed up of corruption and price rise. This is why the common man has decided to challenge them. Now the common man will sit in Parliament," he said.

"Party's vision is Swaraj. People should get the 'raj'. That vision will be finalised. 25-30 issues will be discussed which all issues need to be taken first by the party. Committees will be formed. They will make drafts in four-five months. There will discussions through the country," he said.
